How do I find the strength to get up to my child in the night?

Be in this moment

Do you find it too difficult to get out of bed to your child's crying in the middle of the night? Or, if you do get up, are you impatient or frustrated in your attempts to settle your child? Learn to live in the moment at that moment. Forget about having to get up for work the next morning, or how little sleep you have had. Focus on the moment you are living in and dedicate that moment to the care of your child. Be involved in the issue that is current at that moment and show patience and compassion to your child - they need you in that moment. Be there for them.
